Lately I found myself thinking about expectations a lot.
I hear people saying that they are working towards having no expectations. My initial reaction was feeling astounded. Later I was impressed, when I heard statements like: “I have no, really no, I mean zero expectations.” Many questions crossed my mind. How do you do this? Why is that so important to not have expectations? For how long have you been practicing it? The responses sounded mostly very similar: “If I don’t have expectations, I can’t be disappointed. I’m open to the situations. I’m open to change. I’m flexible. I go with the flow. I feel free.” All sounds good and intriguing to me! I thought: I want that, too.
